Within Future’s games portfolio, we’re constantly looking for new ways to expand our brands on to new platforms and to reach new audiences.”

Certain magazines – including Edge, PSM3, GamesMaster and Xbox World 360 – are available through digital magazine publisher Zinio.

The firm’s App drive follows successful steps by rival Imagine Publishing. It has launched 29 apps across iOS devices, including downloadable editions of its entire print portfolio which features gaming magazines such as GamesTM, Play and Retro Gamer.
